are sheep dangerous

Please try not to laugh at me  :q29:  But I have a small job to do tomorrow

Ratman

If you want paying GET ON WITH IT WOMAN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NZPOME

Beware of rams they can be dangerous, ewes should be ok, but if you're worries take a big stick in with you.

If they look like they might eat you, run!!

Just don't watch the New Zealand film called Black Sheep before you go! :q28:
kate

Sick pay ???

kate

Thanks  NZ :-)  do all rams have horns  Or do they hide amongst the ewes to try and sneak up on you :smt077 OH says that they don't  or is he winding me up :pain10:
NZPOME

Not all rams have horns! Some are polled.

LOL about them hiding, had great images there, your husbands being a rotter. I had a overly tame ram that had no fear of us and could be too bossy, he was sold, I didn't like being in the paddock with him

Just ask when you get there if there is a ram, if you're not comfortable ask them to remove it.

And make your hubby get his own tea tomorrow!  ::
Ratman

Just get on with the job or sheep will be the least of your worries  ::

Park your car right by the fence and leave the door open and the engine running......................................................................................
Wear some sheepskin trousers and if there is a Ram in there..............................................................................................................Bend down eat grass and say a prayer.  ::







On a more serious note:  Stop worrying you will not have any trouble.

You are as much use as a chocolate fireguard :q11:
green man

Don't worry they may come running towards you if they think you have some food, just wave your arms clap your hands and hiss, all herd animals are instinctively afraid of the hiss sound, chances are they may ignore you. Avoid taking a bucket or plastic sack in with you, as that's what the stock man usually takes their supplement in.
headmistress

I still think mint sauce works better ::  ::  ::

Sorry GM will try to be more serious :q11:
headmistress

Has anyone seen Kate?

Did she manage to escape the sheep? :q6:
NZPOME

MrsWW

kate

I was  very brave went boldly into field and the sheep stayed away from me  wave.gif Moved round to the next field only to find two ponys in it horse_ride.gif  :q11: she told me they don't put them in there.
It's no good telling me they won't hurt you  :smt077 I don't do horses they are just to big.
headmistress

Lloyd

headmistress
